Shellman native Thomas Davis plans to retire after the 2018 NFL season.
The 2-time Pro Bowl linebacker was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2005, and has never played a snap for another NFL team.
Davis won the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2014, and was First-Team All-Pro in 2015.
The former Georgia Bulldog is the Panthers all-time leading tackler with 1,015.
He'll turn 35 in March and will look to add to that total in the final year of his contract.
